Chicago Beef Sandwiches and Giardiniera in Boston?

opinionatedchef | Jan 10, 2014 12:20 AM

I have just been reading a long Serious Eats piece on Chicago Beef sandwiches, of which i knew nothing. They sound quite decadent (thinly sliced roast beef dipped in house gravy, served on a roll and topped w/ crunchy spicy vinegary giardiniera.) It's prob safe to say that this is one of those regional specialties that you don't find outside the region, but I thought i'd check here- is that true? I mean, we have as big an Italian population as Chicago, don't we? But maybe that has nothing to do with it.......

Has anyone had something like a Chicago Beef in Boston (or New Haven or Providence or NYC) that was really well done? And the topping, is it called Giardiniera in Boston? Is there a retail brand that you like alot? Thx much for the education.
